Shark Tank Ecomowers Update
- Entrepreneur: Andy Humphrey
- Business: Eco-friendly lawn mowers
- Ask: $90,000 for 20% equity
- Result: No deal
- Shark: None
Andy Humphrey entered the tank, and immediately showed the sharks the differences between traditional lawn mowers and the Ecomowers. He highlighted how bad traditional lawn mowers are for the environment due to unregulated emissions.
Additionally, lawn mowers can provide more pollution than many cars. Andy also says that the EPA will soon begin regulating the emissions of lawn equipment.
An impressive feature about the Ecomowers is that they don’t require any gas, or batteries. It’s basically a push mower, however the blades never need sharpening.
He explains this as being a frictionless system, which is also different from the old-style push mowers. Even more perks about the Ecomowers are that they are completely silent, and the cut blades of grass that fall behind, naturally fertilize the lawn.
However, the sharks are not convinced that a blade-less mower makes the product better. They want to know if there is any competition on the market.
Aside from some blade-less push mowers in Europe, Andy says that he’s presently the only one doing this.
We’ve partnered with six companies to put together a Shark Tank Stocking Stuffer Box that’s worth $100! Here’s everything that’s in the box:
- Sheets Laundry Club Travel Packs x2
- Honey Bee Bars - 12 Pack
- Snactiv Finger Chopsticks
- FryAway Cooking Oil Solidifier
- Pizza Pack
- Nature’s Wild Berry Sampler Pack
Things go from bad to worse, when the sharks ask about sales. It turns out, as Andy admits, that he has a prototype, and is looking for an investment to produce the Ecomowers.
Although he hasn’t sold any of the product that he’s pitching, he goes on to share that he runs an online store selling other competing products. For that company, he’s had $350,000 in sales in the year of filming.
Kevin O’Leary asks why he doesn’t just go to a large manufacturer instead, and ask to put his brand on their products, but Andy doesn’t respond.
Meanwhile, the sharks are unconvinced by the product, with Robert Herjavec later saying the presentation is a joke. He highlights that the power of Ecomowers is only in the name.
Robert is out, and Barbara Corcoran follows, because she ultimately doesn’t have faith in the name either.
Next to go out is Kevin, because he is both confused and uninterested.
Guest shark Jeff Foxworthy thinks there is some potential, however the lack of sales puts him off. For this reason, he is also out.
Dayomond John is Andy’s last hope, but Daymond isn’t at all interested. Daymond goes out, and Andy is ultimately forced to leave
